A southern storm brought a coating to a few inches of snow to central and southern Ohio. A gusty northwesterly wind pushed wind chills to near or a little below zero, so bundle up!

Skies will turn partly cloudy with afternoon sun but temperatures will struggle to surpass 20 degrees. Clearing skies tonight will cause overnight lows to dip to near 10 degrees, with lighter winds under high pressure over the Ohio River Valley.

Saturday will be mainly sunny and noticeably milder, as high pressure slides off to the east and winds turn southerly, raising temperatures into the mid-30s. Clouds will increase late in the day ahead of low pressure moving across southern Canada.

Showers are likely Saturday night, with steady readings in the mid- to upper 30s. A cold front will move through Sunday morning with a period of rain ending as showers mid-morning as the moist flow ends.

Another blast of arctic air will get us off to a cold start early next.
